The In-Laws

Director: Arthur Hiller
Year Released: 1979
Rating: 2.0

Alan Arkin's daughter wants to marry Peter Falk's son, but Arkin isn't so sure he wants the marriage to go through because Falk's behavior - and stories of international travel - are really strange. One event leads to another, and to another, and Arkin becomes embroiled in a covert operation with Falk in some foreign country, almost getting himself killed. Sporadic humor (mostly contained in the last twenty minutes, with an eccentric Noriega-esque leader stealing the show) and the high level of unbelievably kept me from being completely drawn in to this; Arkin's good at delivering extremely negative quips. It's mostly uneven material.
